it's Tenacious D time

So. It's Wednesday and I haven't had any work this week. Right now I'm at the woman's apartment, about to update my resume - my temp agency says they might have a long-term job opening for me, but I need to make my resume more "administrative"; which is fine, sure, I mean, I probably should be updating my resume on a regular basis, but - I mean - why would my agency need a new resume? I mean, they're the ones that have been sending me on jobs for the last year, right? They know what I'm capable of doing and not doing, yes? And the fact that the prospective company won't be seeing my resume until tomorrow leads me to believe that they're not gonna bother with me. The whole point of hiring a temp is to get someone immediately, isn't it?

In other news, the new Tenacious D album is fucking killer. I'll admit, I had some serious doubts about it - I didn't think they'd be able to pull it off - but I was wrong, dead wrong, and I hope they don't kick my ass. I'd list some highlights, but the whole record is insane. I've become a bit self-conscious as I listen to it on the subway, because when I try to suppress laughter I have a tendency to look a little stupid, and there's a whole lot o' suppressing goin' on when I listen to this record in public. Jesus. I recommend headphones for this record, mostly so you can catch all of JB's insanity, but also because it really does sound great - viva Dust Brothers, Dave Grohl's drumming, and Page McConnell keepin' it real on the keyboards.

I do eventually want to talk about my current musical situtation, but I gotta work on the ol' resume, remember. I'll be back later this afternoon.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
